DR TAMMY ESRICH
I am a Chartered Clinical Psychologist. I completed my Doctorate in Clinical Psychology at Edinburgh University in 1997 and have worked for 20 years as a Clinical Psychologist in the NHS. I currently works part time in an adult Palliative Care Team in Worcestershire.
I am a member of the British Psychological Society and is registered with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC).
I am qualified in clinical aromatherapy and therapeutic massage. I trained at the Institute of Traditional Herbal Medicine and Aromatherapy in London and am a member of the IFPA.
With a degree in Human Biology I have always been in awe of the body and it’s ability to heal itself given the right conditions. A trip to Australia in 2007 was the beginning of my relationship with Bowen and my initial training was completed in 2010. I have recently included Kinesiology (muscle testing) into my practice. I am fully insured and a member of the Federation of Holistic Therapists.
For 20 years I was a National Childbirth Trust Teacher in Worcester, becoming an Advanced Teacher for 15 of these years. As an Associate Midwifery Lecturer, I worked with Student Midwives for some years teaching Active Birth, and how to teach adults. For three years I was Parenting Education Consultant for Worcestershire Acute NHS Trust, and whilst in post helped to develop a DVD for parents to be, writing the script for the birth story on the DVD. I have contributed to a Midwifery in the Community textbook, with a chapter on teaching antenatal education in the community, and for the past 5 years have practised as an Independent Childbirth Educator in Worcestershire.
Dr Elise Kearney
I am a Chartered Consultant Clinical Psychologist. I completed my doctorate in Clinical Psychology at The University of Glasgow in 2002 and worked in the NHS for 17 years. More recently, after a break in practice to bring up my own young family, I returned to practice privately at The Fold Therapy Centre.
I am passionate about craniosacral therapy and how it helps bring people in to a more healthy relationship with themselves. Empowering people to reconnect to their own body, mind and spirit is a privilege.
I completed my training in July 2017 and am a member of the CSTA and a member of the UK Reiki Federation.
My background originally was in Equine craniosacral and my aim now is to bring a healthy balance to people or animals in which ever realm is needed, as a Craniosacral Practitioner I already treat horse and rider.
Ireceived my diploma in craniosacral therapy from Paul Vick at Resonance Training and I am a member of the Craniosacral Therapy Association; I specialise in the biodynamic approach to craniosacral therapy. I have treated a range of patients and conditions, from babies with colic and sleep issues to clients with anxiety, migraines, back pain, sciatica and so on. I am continually amazed by the effectiveness of craniosacral therapy and believe that small changes can make a huge positive impact on a person’s life.
In my work, I use a combination of Hypnotherapy and NLP, together with general coaching techniques, which means that I have a wide range of skills at my disposal to help my clients improve their lives.
I am fully insured and registered with the General Hypnotherapy Register (GHR) and the Association of NLP (ANLP). I am also an associate member of the British Psychological Society.
As a qualified and experienced Solution Focused Hypnotherapist I help my clients overcome a wide range of challenges in their lives; making a real difference to their happiness and helping them to achieve their goals and ambitions.
I hold the Hypnotherapy Practitioner Diploma from the prestigious Clifton Practice in Bristol. This qualification is considered the gold standard in hypnotherapy training. I am a member of the Association of Solution Focused Hypnotherapy (AfSFH). I have a full DBS check.
I work both as a massage therapist and teach holistic and Indian Head massage to a professional level at the Fold as part of the Bristol College of Massage and Bodywork.
I qualified with BCMB with a level 4 qualification awarded by the Massage Training Institute and am on the CNHC register.
I am a member of the Massage Training Institute, International Massage Association and CHNC Registered.
After achieving my teaching qualification, I became an accredited tutor for the Massage Training Institute in 2018 and I now lead, together with my colleague Cleo, the BCMB Worcester teaching team who run highly recognised accredited massage courses here at The Fold.

I studied Nutritional Therapy at Worcester University on a 2-year, Master’s level postgraduate course, accredited by the Nutritional Therapy Education Commission. Originally a research scientist, I obtained my PhD in immunology from Guy’s Hospital, London.
Fiona Clarke RGN MAR
I am a qualified nurse with over 30 years of experience working with both adults and children. I qualified as a Reflexologist in 1994 and have experience in treating people of all ages. I feel passionate about the positive outcomes that Reflexology can bring and the power within the human body to heal itself. Reflexology can stimulate the body to start this healing process while the recipient enjoys a relaxing treatment on their feet.
I am a qualified Reiki Master and have practiced Reiki for over 12 years. I live in awe of the miraculous results I get to see on people and animals. Many people have never experienced complete inner peace until they try Reiki.
It is such a privelege to start them on their journey and watch the healing take place physically and emotionally.
